SPOKANE, Wash. – A local father featured as part of Project Inspire on KREM 2 News will host a fundraiser Wednesday night to help with his medical bills.

Families are asked to eat Wednesday between 5:00 and 9:00 p.m. at El Sombrero Restaurant and Cantina at 10117 N. Newport Highway. A portion of the proceeds go to pay the medical bills for Joey McClure.

WATCH: "Dollars for Daddy" father undergoes bone marrow transplant

McClure recently underwent a bone marrow transplant. He has been battling an aggressive form of leukemia. McClure has also been through several rounds of high intensity chemotherapy.

Doctors told him he needed a bone marrow transplant and his siblings and close friends took the test to see if they were a match. His sister turned out to be a perfect match.
McClure's family created the campaign “Dollars For Daddy” in hopes of helping pay for his medical bills. McClure was diagnosed last fall and is a father of three.
